Well,

I will take a stab at it, if I understand the Super 2 rules, then I am guessing right around May 24th is the day that they are waiting.

Here is a link to a good article if some were wondering about..."what the hell is a Super 2"

ps....rumor is they are coming out with a Super Duper 2 rule just for Strasburg!

Of course If you are willing to pay a guy a 50 Million dollar signing bonus, money is not a problem ;-D

Had a chance to see Wieters play against the home town team (Syracuse Chiefs) tonight. Hit the first pitch he saw a mile. Last night he hit two against us. Those three homers give him only four on the season. But he's coming around...

A even better reason to keep him down, by keeping him pass the arbitration deadline and calling him afterwards buy a team who knows they cant compete this season a extra year of service time for Wieters, and try to make sense his huge signing bonus, imo Scott Boras should be banned from baseball, I think he is a major reason for the steroids issue.

Someone should write a book on how agents like Boras have ruined the game. If their already is one, could you post the title?

Sports agents aren't all bad, haven't you seen Jerry McGuire?
